Dr. Xandrea L Kirtley has the following 3 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have been seeing Dr. Kirtley since I first went to her back in early 2002, when my previous doctor was unable to help me cure an infection. She was finally able to diagnose and properly treat it, and I've been going to her ever since, even after I switched to a different insurance that didn't fully cover her office. She's very diligent, professional, caring, and empathetic. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Kirtley's a really nice doctor, and I especially have appreciated the time she's spent with my teenaged daughters. However, we're going to start going somewhere else because of the staff and office procedures. They're very, very slow to get simple lab results and new or refilled prescriptions to the patient. For a very simple thyroid test, I have to start a month in advance if I don't want to run out of medication. At my old doctor, the longest it ever took was 48 hours. And then, half the time when I DO get my results sent to me, they forget to include the prescription I need, which means I have to call the office, go through their maze of leaving messages and returning phone calls, etc. It's just not worth it anymore.
Dr. Kirtley became my doctor when I switched to HAP and had to change doctors. She referred me to a specialist who solved a problem I have had for ten years. She spends plenty of time with me and I feel comfotable talking with her. She actually took away one of my meds instead of adding to them, and has continued to help with my diabetes!
